Before You Go (self-released)
Veteran bass player-for-hire Aaron Germain proves his skill on this release. Even if progressive jazz isn’t really your thing you have to admire the degree of technical prowess on display here. Germain is a talented musician, and he’s assembled an impressive collection of locals to back him up here.
At Rassella’s (1534 Fillmore St., San Francisco) on February 22. 8 p.m., TBA
